    i want to buy a few cds from hospital records, but i don't know what to do



    i could get them straight from hospital record's shop, where for example hospital mix vol. 1 is
    5 euros

    or amazon where the same album is
    11.99 dollars

    if i'm paying in usd then what should i do?
    i think i have to pay some kind of import tax or something like that since i live in the us but i really just don't know how this crap works.

    If u live in the us then it's exactly what it says the price is. I buy CDs off there all the time and I've never had any import tax.

    dunno about exporting to the us but if u import a cd into the uk from the us, customs will charge u 3.5% duty and 15% vat on the value of goods + freight charge! its probably pretty similar with american customs but at that low value it will not occur any taxes!

    There is an international fee (1 or 1.5% I think). XE.com for exchange rates
